Speedtest Widget for Blogger blogs

A speed test widget in your blog can attract more traffic. That is absolutely true especially if it offers not just one but four choices of modules from credible speed test sites such as SpeedTest, DSL Reports, Speakeasy and TestMy iPhone.

The distance between the user and the website matters. With four modules, your blog visitors will have a better choice as to which closest speed test site to use for a more acceptable and accurate result.

How to install the speed test widget in Blogger blogs:
  1. Login to your Blogger account.
  2. In your 'Dashboard', go to 'Layout'.
  3. Click 'Add a Gadget' and then select 'HTML/JavaScript'.
  4. Copy and paste the following code in the 'Configure HTML/JavaScript' window and click 'Save'.
  5. <script src="http://www.gmodules.com/ig/ifr?url=http://hosting.gmodules.com/ig/gadgets/file/103534220535816043845/speedtest.xml&synd=open&w=420&h=280&title=Internet+Speed+Test&border=%23ffffff%7C3px%2C1px+solid+%23999999&output=js"></script>
